What are the String Saver and TUSQ Materials in Saddles?

String Saver Saddles

String Saver saddles are made with a unique combination of materials made to enhance tone and dramatically reduce string breakage. Each saddle has the String Saver which is impregnated with PTFE, the slipperiest substance on earth.

The PTFE in String Savers eases the grip between the saddle and string, spreading the stress over a greater portion of the string, just enough to drastically reduce string breakage.

Our patented String Saver Originals are made entirely of our String Saver material and give you a very balanced tone across the spectrum. People who were breaking one or two strings a night have contacted us after using String Savers and are amazed that they go weeks and months without breaking a string!

String Saver Classics are made with an extremely high quality steel saddle with our patented String Saver material inserted in the string ramp. String Saver Classics preserve the classic look of a metal saddles while freeing you from the problem of breaking strings.

TUSQ Saddles

TUSQ Saddles have a rich tone without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone, and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering the consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ saddles are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body.

    I love block saddles ! They have added to the sustain of my guitar over the vintage look! Upgrade to these if you like that vibration you get from the body of your guitar ! I recommend.

    Noticeable difference in sustain and tuning stability

    Since I have installed these on my Strat, I have not had near the tuning issues when using the tremolo as I had before. These saddles are the bomb!

    I’ve been using Tusq and Graphtech stuff since I heard about them almost 20 years ago. I’ve always been impressed with the consistent quality. I’m a dedicated fan and will always have this product on all of my guitars.
